I know we have all been waiting for the Bionic and it sucks that the "end of waiting" won't be for another month or so but if you read Motorola's earnings statement from their CEO, there may be a few silver linings in this Bionic cloud.
First, Jha (Motorola's CEO) said that they wanted to "ensure that we deliver an exceptional consumer experience". While most of us wish we were reading this on a Bionic right now, I personally would prefer that it is a quality product that lives up to the hype as opposed to one that was rushed to the market that wasn't ready just to appease us clamoring for it.
Second, a major part of Motorola's business portfolio is the revenue they receive from their patents. With that being said, Jha said part of the delay was so they could develop their own 4g chip that would be used in the Bionic and future devices. This new 4g chip isn't just to improve the Bionic, but their patent portfolio. In order to ensure that this new chip brings in revenue through other manufacturers using it, it would need to give these manufacturers a good reason to do so. How do you do that? By making it a significant improvement over the current technology. Two things come to mind that could be improved over the current technology and those are battery life and size.
Perhaps its just wishful thinking on my part but maybe we'll be rewarded for our patience with not only the first dual core 4g phone, but one with significantly better battery life in a smaller package.
I don't know if I'm right on this one, but maybe this will help make the wait a little less unbearable.
